You've probably already heard it, but Whitney Houston died today. No word on the cause yet.

Sad, maybe, but not "a tragedy" as some people are calling it. As far as I can see, she did an Amy Whitehouse on it - too much drugs & booze.

And, as usual, people are trying to cash in on it already:

Yep, with everything that is happening in the world today we are subjected to a news industry that let's the death of a crack head dominate the day's stories. Gotta love it. I couldn't give two shits about the death of that woman. She, like many others, made a fortune all-the-while making no meaningful contribution to society. She, like so many others, were/are part of a much larger problem with our society. If you guys want to put her on a pedestal, then by all means feel free to do so. I on the other hand will never celebrate the life of an individual such as her.

You may now return to fawning over dead, famous, drug addicts.

Whitney Houston: New Jersey Governor’s decision to lower flags for star's funeral criticised

CHRIS Christie, the Governor of New Jersey, has defended his decision to have flags lowered to half-mast for Whitney Houston.

The Republican governor said his office has been receiving messages disparaging Houston and attacking his decision to lower flags at government buildings in her home state on Saturday, the day of her funeral.

Mr Christie said: "I am disturbed by people who believe that because her ultimate demise, and we don't know what is the cause of her death yet, but because of her history of substance abuse that somehow she's forfeited the good things that she did in her life. I just reject that on a human level. "What I would say to everybody is, 'There but for the grace of God go I.'"

Houston, who had a long history of drug abuse, died at the age of 48, and was found in a bath at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles last Saturday.

The cause of death has not been established but detectives believe she had consumed alcohol and prescription dugs.

Her funeral is being held at the New Jersey church where she sang in the choir as a girl. Mr Christie lives in Mendham, a wealthy town where Houston also had lived.

Opponents of his decision said flags should only be lowered for figures such as members of the military and police officers, and that it was wrong to honour someone who had been addicted to drugs.

Kevin Costner, who starred with Houston in her biggest movie "The Bodyguard," is likely to speak at the funeral. Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder are expected to sing during the service at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey which, will be broadcast globally on the internet.

It also emerged that Houston was seen drinking significant amounts of alcohol before 10am on two mornings last week by the pool at the Beverly Hilton.

She reportedly accused bartenders of watering down her drinks with ice, and was doing somersaults into the pool.

lower the flags for a washed-up ex-singer drug addict? Really?
